most of all I am humbled by the fact that I am unworthy of such love.
The title of this blog is taken from the famous Jonathan Edwards sermon.
That sermon dealt with the fact that the only thing keeping the ungodly
(unsaved) out of Hell is God. In other words, God keeps such people alive and
out of Hell to give them the opportunity to be saved. How long He gives them is
strictly according to His will not theirs!
Just as this truth shook millions of churchgoers who heard or read this
sermon the same should shake those of us who are believers. The same Bible that
teaches the truth about the unsaved also teaches that while the saved are
secure in the Lord they also are kept from a different judgment purely based on
His will and purpose.
I can think of no greater compliment than to learn that my novel has so impressed someone that he/she desires to read the Bible!
Those of you who’ve followed me for awhile know that I serve God through a variety of means including writing, serving in the church, and as vice president of T&R Independent Books. But what is my ultimate service?
The consensus opinion is that you need to have your book copyrighted. Now the truth is that the moment you create the work it is considered copyrighted. This means that you can include a copyright designation in your book (example: copyright © 2017).
You can also file with the government to get the book copyrighted.
I have been a Christian for over 44 years and have been serving Him almost from the beginning. Over the years my service has changed, but I have learned that wherever God puts me He is faithful and always equips me to do the job.
How you respond to that first call to service may very well set the pattern for the rest of your life. Respond rightly and God will build upon it. There is no telling what He will do with you!
If you want to serve God then start by doing the little things. Pray about it, be a soul winner, and serve in the church even if it involves menial activities. You will be amazed when you see how He works these things into your life and issues a call to you!
